Accounting and the social: A pedagogic perspective

Linda Lewis, Christopher Humphrey, David Owen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The following paper provides an account of a university course which attempts to emphasise the reflexive nature of accounting and society. To be more precise the course is designed to introduce students to notions of accounting and the social which may not be so apparent in other accounting courses which they have studied. This paper recounts the motivation for offering the course, the range of material covered, the way the course is conducted and the way it has progressed during the last 5 years. As justification for the existence of the course the pedagogical aims and benefits are interwoven and explained throughout the text. © 1992 Academic Press Limited.
